TALK #1 - Richard Munn "Fun with Azure Data Studio"
Azure Data Studio is one of the gotta-have apps for working with SQL Server. It’s lightweight, extendable, and cross-platform, and supports databases on-prem and in the cloud (Azure or Amazon RDS – you choose), and has some cool features like Notebooks, PowerShell, and Git built-in. Using the same code base as the excellent Visual Studio Code, Microsoft are providing a tool that’s a pleasure to use and might possibly change your life. OK, so that might not be 100% true, but let’s take a look..

-- Bio -- Richard is a production DBA at a Financial Services provider in Swindon (no prizes) and has been for longer than he cares to remember. He started chuckling at developers’ attempt to write efficient queries with SQL 6.5 over 20 years ago. He still doesn’t have a life outside of being a professional nerd, although he’ll talk to anybody about any data subject if there’s coffee and (hopefully) pizza.
